2019 Year-to-Date Highlights:

 

Sold the Company’s majority interest in Banana Whale for $2.0 million (USD) realizing an approximate $930,000 gain

Entered into an agreement to acquire a majority interest in MAHAM LLC (MAHAM), an innovative, technology-driven yoga studio and digital concept

Entered into a preliminary, non-binding agreement to acquire a majority interest in Redspots Creative (Hong Kong) Company Limited (Redspots Creative), a multi-media production company, in a stock transaction based on post-closing, future earnings

 

Mark White, Chief Executive Officer of One Horizon Group, stated, “We are extremely pleased with the Company’s progress throughout 2018 and continued advancements heading into 2019. We are building a solid and sustainable platform for long-term growth. We began 2018 with the acquisition of 123Wish, a subscription-based platform providing users with exclusive opportunities to enjoy personalized, dream experiences with celebrities and renowned social media influencers, while supporting various charities. During the year, 123Wish launched an on-demand social experience App that enables users to win incredible opportunities with the stars they love. These experiences not only give people worldwide a chance to meet and interact with the well-known stars and influencers, but also allows them to participate in charities. This platform is especially powerful in creating charity awareness for the younger generations, such as Gen Z and millennials.”

 

“Beyond our acquisition of 123Wish, we completed the acquisition of C-Rod, Inc., a premier music production company, along with its record label and media content division, now collectively operating as ‘Love Media House.’ Love Media House has a proven track record of working with A-list superstars and artists consistently at the top of the Billboard charts. This relationship has generated immediate synergies with 123Wish, providing access to Love Media House’s recognized artists and interactions with their fan base.”

 

“We also acquired a majority interest in Banana Whale in 2018. However, in February 2019, we decided to sell BWS, which returned in excess of 100% on invested capital in less than nine months. We believe this strategic sale further illustrates the flexibility of our holding company model to maximize shareholder value.”

 

 

 

 

“We have continued our momentum heading into 2019, beginning with our agreement to acquire a majority interest in MAHAM, a new and unique yoga experience with a digital outlook. The combination of MAHAM yoga with our 123Wish Platform technology and streaming media capabilities positions us to bring MAHAM yoga from a hot local concept to a much broader global platform through digital streaming. We believe this is just another illustration of the scalability of our platform.”

 

“Similarly, we announced last month that we entered into a preliminary agreement to acquire a majority interest in Redspots Creative, which provides an array of 2D/3D video production, as well as AR/VR interactive technologies. We are particularly excited about Redspots’ proprietary “virtual idol” system, which utilizes motion-capture and facial expression-capture technology, as well as real-time rendering, voice control and other systems for integration of the actor's movements, expressions, and voice to the virtual character in real time. We believe this planned acquisition could prove transformational to the business and can be easily leveraged across our media and digital technology platform.”

 

“Overall, we remain highly disciplined in our M&A strategy, and believe we have built a solid foundation for continued growth, both organic and through strategic acquisitions. We have maintained a solid balance sheet with no long-term debt, and are committed to driving significant value for shareholders in 2019,” concluded Mr. White.
